hell yes the pink squirrel does it again, i am absolutely amazed how that fly flat out murders them when a bead head hares ear tied very buggy but natural will not. that or a small Barr's slumpbuster are now my two ONLY subsurface patterns when not targeting specific species of bugs. otherwise use a hopper/dropper setup when the summer bring hoppers to the plate. oh BTW what are you using for the pink trigger on the fly, chennille or pink dubbing. I only ask because i have found the pink haretron mixed about 60% with 40% pink ice dub to be the best trigger, clear water or cloudy.

Tail — Use three strands of purple crystal flash.

Rib — use medium red copper wire

Dubbing — Fox squirrel body hair blended with Hair-Tron cinnamon

Collar — Use florescent hot pink chenille
